Small book, but full of excellent tips on how to write productively, and regularly, without the kind of procrastination panic that is all too common. Goes through all excuses systematically, dispelling common myths, and helps develop the tools you need specifically for your situation. Separates book-writing strategies from academic articles with well-thought-out specifics for each. Helps you view writing as just another part of your job, and calms any psychological qualms about it.

Not only will you write a whole lot more, but you'll have a good laugh about it, this book is hilarious. Try not to get too distracted from its good advice. I wish for myself it had been written 30 years ago!

This book is a SHORT book on how to write A LOT.

The title of the book is in contradiction with the approach of the writer.

This is a problem because the content is not comprehensive either.

There a couple of fantastic quote.

However for the most part, the book advises to you to sit down and write, but provides little practical tips to get there.

Easy read.

Hi, my name is Meg and I'm a binge writer. 19 avril 2009
Par Megan L. Mccall - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I picked up this book knowing that it was going to tell me to stick to a writing schedule. I thought, "Well, I'll just ignore that part and pick out the stuff I like." I really did not want to hear that in order to be productive, I would have to schedule several hours a week in order to write. I am a busy person; where on earth will I "find the time"? Long weekends and school breaks are when the writing will get done. Well, P. J. Silvia shattered that illusion into a million pieces... He made it clear that I will never complete my papers if I keep waiting for the perfect moment, because during those perfect moments I will find something else that needs to be done (e.g. catch up on sleep, call my mother, wash the laundry, etc.). Unfortunately, it is my job to write. Problem, no?

But you see, I DETEST writing. I become paralyzed by anxiety, and I dread the exhaustion that inevitably follows a bout with my computer. So, I avoid it. But Dr Silvia argues that if I wrote at a specific time, on specific days, every week--and gave myself small goals for that session (e.g. write 200 words)--there would be no anxiety. Afterall, who can't write 200 words in an hour or two? Moreover, that small task won't drain me of energy. Research would not become enjoyable, but it would lose its status as cruel and unusual punishment. It would simply become an unpleasant part of my work, comparable to having to attend boring committee meetings.

I picked up this book intending to ignore the nasty scheduling piece, and I left converted. This book shatters any illusions you may have about binge writing being the "technique" that works for you. So, if you don't want to schedule writing time, maybe you should ask yourself why--and then read this book.

Motivational, Insightful and Extremely Helpful! 16 décembre 2007
Par Franciscan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This little volume carries a lot of punch; don't be confused by it's small stature. While Silvia outlines his method right from the start - Schedule Time to Write - his development of the things one needs to consider in order to be productive is wonderfully insightful.

Perhaps the most useful chapter is the second in which he lists a number of "Specious Barriers to Writing a Lot," i.e. poor excuses. It may be his background in psychology, or just his keen observational and analytical skills, but he is right on target in identifying those excuses we use time and again to prevent productive writing. His combating of these barriers is both humorous and motivating.

The only downside, and it is minor, is that he writes as if to an audience comprised solely of psychologists. Granted, he is one and the book is published by the APA, but the psychological examples can become a bit grating. That said, his book still speaks to a wide readership that can glean wonderful tips from his book. (My field is in the humanities and I found the book to be top notch!) I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a writer - especially the academics out there!

Some strong parts but many weak ones, too 6 juin 2011
Par Anonymous - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a mercifully short and amusing book on writing for academic psychologists. I read it in two days, and I enjoyed it--for the most part. I have read a few books that treat the subject of writing in the academic setting in more depth, though, and I would not recommend this book as the only book you should read on writing. It discusses some subjects that I haven't seen addressed in other books, which is great. The chapter on publishing in journals and dealing with reviewers is nice. The discussion of different goals for grad students and faculty is very helpful; I will definitely borrow from it when I teach another professional seminar for grad students. I also enjoyed the opening chapters, which discuss commonly offered excuses for not writing on a schedule. Now, the quibbles.

First, I found the discussion of how to make the schedule to be too opaque. If you want more advice on how to actually make an academic work schedule, with realistic examples, I would recommend Eviatar Zerubavel's "Clockwork Muse." He breaks it down so that really any idiot can follow the advice. He also talks about finding your most productive times for writing. Silvia's advice is essentially to write in the morning, but this might not work for everyone. Some people work better at night. Zerubavel discusses methods for finding your most productive times. He also identifies some useful techniques for making writing easy and enjoyable--something that Silvia has not found a way to do yet, judging from what he says repeatedly about how unpleasant writing is.

Second, the section on style was very weak, in my opinion. Silvia recommends Strunk and White as the go-to style book, which is kind of bizarre... I am guessing there aren't any psycholinguists in his department who read the Language Log or know anything about sentence processing. If you want a more linguistically sophisticated book that goes beyond "use good words" and "don't use bad words", check out books by Joseph Williams. His Style: Ten Lessons In Clarity and Grace breaks things down in a helpful and foolproof way, with examples, and explains *why* certain sentences are easier to understand than others.

409 words/day over the last 28 days 10 mai 2007
Par Jared Ladbury - Publié sur
Format: Broché
All of my grad student friends went to a talk by Dr. Silvia during a recent conference. I decided to go to a different talk on some boring topic I don't remember anymore. Everyone came back raving about what a good talk it was and how helpful the advice seemed. So I decided to buy this book because I didn't want to be left out of the conversation.

Over the last month, I followed the advice in this book and tripled my average writing output even though I had a master's thesis to defend and was teaching my first class. I owe 3908 words in my thesis and 11452 words overall to the method in this book. I think I owe a piece of my sanity to it as well.

Not worth the money 3 octobre 2008
Par Laura R. Barraclough - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This product has a handful of useful tips but its basic premise can be summed up in a few words: Make a writing schedule, stick to it, and don't make emotional or psychological excuses. That's about all the book has to say, and while the author doesn't claim to do much more, nonetheless it is not worth the money and is not the kind of book you'd want to return to again and again. In addition, its sole target audience seems to be the field of psychology, so its usefulness is even less for people in other fields.
